Lonavala Experience: If you are in Pune/Mumbai ,Lonavala Khandala is a must vist.But the issue is the maintance of the place.It is one pf the dirtiest tourist place I have everseen in India.No doubt the places are beautiful;but i appeal to all tourists to make it sustainable for the nest generation..orelse it will be the garbage space for Maharastra.Even the government has to formulate some policies to keep the place clean and garbage free.
Food, sight-seeing and shopping: The valleys, hills, waterfalls, Lush Greenery and pleasant cool winds of Lonavala and Khandala could make you to feel romantic all over again.
Once you are in Lonavala/Khandala a must buy is Chiki nad jelly chocolates.There are several local brands.But always prefer Maganlal chiki stores.
Nothing else to buy.its mostly a weekend visit to the lap of nature.
I personally went to Maganlal and the chikis nad jams were awsome.
Activities & things to do: Trekking and camping are the mostly done out door actvities in Lonavala and Khandala.
Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: Trains are available from Mumbai Central Station and Pune Junction to Lonavala. You can hire auto/cabs at the station.One can cover all the places in one day if it is for sightseeing only.
Rainy saeson is the best time to visit.Never forget to carry your umbrella with you.
